Have you heard about making an advent out of Christmas Books? What a fun way to get in the Christmas spirit! I saw this on a blog I follow.
First, gather 24 Christmas books.
I am using both Santa type books and books about Christ. I didn't have 24, so I borrowed some from my mom and I need to go search for a few more.
Next, I wrapped each of the books and numbered them.
Tomorrow night when Jefferson heads to bed there will be a wrapped book on his bed with the number 24. He can open it and we will read the book before he goes to bed. He'll get a new book each night until Christmas Eve. I am so excited!
I figure this will be an expense this year, but next year I will have all 24 books to do it all over again.
